AT THE SHIP YARDS:-- Capt. Jones quite surprised himself and all mankind, by launching yesterday, with masts standing, the handsome schooner J.M. JONES, of 150 tons, just built for the lumber trade. He has well under way and ready for launching next week, a schooner of 250 tons, of good model and substantially built, for the produce and freighting trade. Besides these he is repairing the brigs ROBERT BURNS and ALGOMAH, three masted schooner CHERUBUSCO and several others, while the propeller POCAHONTAS is waiting her turn.
